  • The atypical Rho GTPase RhoD and its role in cellular dynamics 

    Blom, Magdalena (Inst för mikrobiologi, tumör- och cellbiologi / Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology, 2017-05-24)
    Despite its discovery 20 years ago, the accumulated knowledge about the Rho member RhoD is scarce. Instead, the vast majority of studies concerning Rho GTPases has focused on the three classical members RhoA, Cdc42 and ...
  • Metabolism and neural differentiation in childhood neuroblastoma 

    Oliynyk, Ganna (Inst för mikrobiologi, tumör- och cellbiologi / Dept of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology, 2017-05-19)
